Future is undoubtedly one of the most popular rappers in the Hip Hop world right now. He also had a great run in 2017 after releasing two albums within two weeks of each other in February of that year. He previously made music history as the first artist to release two Billboard 200 chart-topping albums in consecutive weeks. In fact, this is also why 50 Cent believes Future is way bigger than Jay-Z in the streets.

On the other hand, Jay-Z is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential artists in the hip-hop industry. Jay is also interested in fields other than hip-hop, but his first love will always be music.

Recently, 50 Cent expressed his opinion that Future holds greater popularity amongst street audiences than Jay-Z, although some may find this claim difficult to accept. Nonetheless, in terms of their abilities and achievements, the gap between the two rappers is relatively narrow. Both have amassed over ten years of experience in the industry and exert substantial influence in their respective spheres.

While speaking in a recent interview with MSNBC, 50 Cent stated that Jay-Z’s extensive legacy has granted him greater commercial dominance, but Future, a Southern hip-hop pioneer, possesses many hidden gems waiting to be discovered.


“Yeah, yes,” the Queens MC responded to the interviewer’s prompt that Hendrix is bigger than Hov in the streets. “Way bigger. Like, there’s consistent music from him that didn’t chart that [are] huge records that people love and appreciate. Later, it may not have the same things to hold onto that you have at points.”

It is ambiguous whether 50 Cent was comparing the two artists’ discographies or commenting on their longevity. Nevertheless, his perspective echoes the current demand for certain styles of music. While Jay-Z is a renowned figure in the industry, there are those who believe that Future’s prime has yet to come to an end. Additionally, due to his notable influence in the past decade, many already view him as a legend.
